Mini Athletics makes a difference to the lives of children and franchisees.

When Clare and Kirk Bowyer co-founded Mini Athletics, they wanted to build a class that was like no other. A positive and imaginative introduction to sport.

However, they also wanted to build a franchise business that gave a rewarding and flexible work-life balance to franchisees. Since Mini Athletics creation in 2016 that vision has very much been created with thousands of children in the program and franchisees enjoying a rewarding business of their own.

It is important that franchisees have the focus to build their business.  Mini Athletics HQ supply all the support franchisees need and help build plans and business goals.  Franchisees just need the focus in order to achieve these.

A franchisee needs to be able to build good relationships with a range of people, whether that’s encouraging and inspiring children, communicating with parents, or leading a team of coaches.

Organisational Skills.

The Mini Athletics website and online systems give franchisees all the resources they need to develop their own business. However, franchisees do need to be highly organised in order to effectively manage their business.

Why Mini Athletics chose to franchise?

Mini Athletics is a magical class for children. However, it is also a great business for people with busy family lives. Prior to Clare and Kirk founding Mini Athletics, they both struggled with their work life balance. Therefore they wanted to build not only a class that was fantastic for children but also a business that was successful and could work around family life.

How much do potential franchisees need to franchise?

Initially, there is a one off setup fee. This buys the business and includes:

  • An exclusive collection of postcodes to operate your business within.
  • Full training - practical and theory.
  • Ongoing support.
  • Equipment.
  • IT and web based systems to streamline your administration time.
  • Health and safety policies and procedures.
  • Child safeguarding policies and procedures.
